Alexander Klink has reported a vulnerability in OpenCA, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application allowing users to perform certain actions via HTTP requests without performing any validity checks to verify the request. This can be exploited to e.g. issue arbitrary certificates by enticing an administrative user to visit a malicious web site.
The vulnerability is reported in version 0.9.2.5. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Fixed in version 1.0.1.
